THE STORY OF MARIA'S
Maria’s Cocina Mexicana (Mexican Kitchen) is proudly owned and operated by longtime local restaurateurs Enrique & Maria Arias and their family. The Arias Family has been serving the local community for more than 30 years, formerly as El Toro Mexican Restaurant. At Maria’s, you will continue to find your longtime menu favorites in addition to new and innovative dishes inspired by Maria’s traditional cooking methods and recipes passed down from previous generations.
Merging family recipes with broader Mexican traditions, the result is thoughtfully prepared, scratch-made food, served by our inviting and longstanding staff in a warm, hacienda-style atmosphere. We invite you to come and sip a margarita in our newly remodeled Cantina or
enjoy one of Maria’s specials in our reinvigorated dining room, from our Familia to yours!
